I've got a 9 inch housing out of a 69 to 70 ford truck. Its 56 inches from housing flange to flange. I'm needing to order/ cut down axles for this. How do I determine what length axle to use?

Thanks in advance for the help.

i believe those housings are approximately 61" wide with the axles installed. each axle is 30" long from splines to axle flange plus a 1" space between them to accomodate the crosspin in the differential.
